I first started becoming interested in dealing with Spain’s ‘Red Tape’ when, as a Spanish teacher, my students would often bring me official looking letters & ask me to translate them. I could tell them what the letters said – but I often had no idea what they actually meant, so I would go & do some research. I’ve always enjoyed researching & studying, & for some reason Spanish legalese fascinates me – so I started reading the laws & various government websites!

I’m not a lawyer though, & nothing in my articles is to be considered legal advice. However, I do research very carefully, & aim to have all the information as accurate & up to date as possible. I hope you find them useful.

Many of my articles can also be found in the Grapevine Magazines, not just in Jávea, but syndicated throughout Spain. There are also some information files.
